Weir might be using "concerto" in a "pice of classical music sense", or he could actually mean an actual concerto ( I was in classical retail for years, I got used to trying to figure out, what people really wanted ).
If it is a concerto , he might have meant one of the 3 piano concerto, the violin concerto ( the 2nd actually) , or the Concerto for Orchestra .
If it just is a general reference to Bartok . I might well be the "Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste" .
I would think (hope) that most Deadheads would be able to get into Bartok .
A good starting point would be the classic recording of the Concerto for Orchestra , coupled with the MFSPAC, by Reiner/Chicago .

"Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste" is an awesome piece of music. It would have been an interesting undertaking for the Dead to try and perform. (evil)
